Mainly Museums: PHM

PHM_Banners

I was honoured to be asked to write something for the Mainly Museums blog recently, and decided very quickly that it would be good to champion Manchester’s Peoples History Museum, (PHM), on the site. This was not just because of my political leanings and social justice interests, but also because PHM tells its story through the graphic accoutrements of political activity; from trade union banners to posters, from badges to membership cards, from propaganda leaflets to broadsheets and magazine covers.

The article is an expanded rewrite of my post about the PHM on Field Readings after my first visit many years ago, and can be read by following this link.
